The inclusion of someone from Luffy’s childhood always makes for an epic tale. Add in the fact that she is also Shank’s daughter, and it guarantees some epic pirate battles. Hopefully Uta’s fate is more similar to Sabo’s than to Ace’s. While the movie will likely tug at the heart strings, audiences probably do not want another hole punched through their chests. The film’s focus on a diva also guarantees music, which should add an extra level of enjoyment to the world’s top-selling manga title of all time.
One Piece Film Red is the 15th film in the franchise and its highest growing theatrical release with over $93 million earned as of September 8. Hopefully the film does will in the other regions as well, and its success will compare to Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. Multiple massively successful anime films will only help guarantee we get more of them released outside of Japan.
